The Jackson JS Series Monarkh SC JS22Q Electric Guitar in Transparent Purple Burst marries classic style with modern flair beautifully, offering the best of both worlds. If you're a guitarist who likes to push your playing to the limit, favouring modern metal styles with plenty of attitude, then the Monarkh is the model for you.
The JS Series Monarkh SC JS22Q inherits a classic single-cutaway body shape, which confirms its rock star credentials from the off. Built using lightweight poplar, the body is a joy to wield and perfect for taking to the stage with. Generating a smooth mid-range character comes naturally to poplar, and you are assured beefy tones with an impressive energy from the Monarkh.
The JS22Q benefits from a quilt maple top, which not only provides a stunning finish thanks to the transparent purple burst paintwork, but also ensures that the high-end is represented to guarantee a well-rounded output.
Durable neck design
Joined to the body is a sturdy single-piece maple neck, which is fitted using a bolt-on scarf joint that is both solid and creates a comfortable resting position for the guitar during performances. Jackson have also employed graphite reinforcement to prevent twisting or warping of the neck over time. The icing on the cake comes in the form of Jackson's speed profile, which allows the neck to sit sweetly in the crook of your hand.
Partnered with the neck is an amaranth fingerboard, which has 22 jumbo frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. Inheriting Jackson's unique compound radius design, the fingerboard establishes a feel of familiarity for the fingers as they shift along the neck and switch between strings.
Jackson high output humbuckers
The Jackson JS Series Monarkh SC JS22Q is home to a pair of their high output humbuckers, which translates the versatile tonality of the tonewoods exquisitely. Whether you're laying down intricate rhythm chops, swiftly alternate-picking through elaborate scale runs, performing searing lead licks, or hammering through palm-muted riffs, the pickups are on-hand to ensure that your performance is delivered as vigorously as you wish it to be. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, a mater tone pot, and a three-way pickups selector switch to keep everything simple and effective.
The body is fitted with Jackson's radius compensated tune-o-matic-style bridge and anchored tailpiece, which work together harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain. Whether you prefer to set your action as low as possible, or keep the strings high so that you can dig in with enthusiasm, the bridge is easy to adjust. Jackson's sealed die-cast tuning machines preserve tuning integrity rigidly throughout the most demanding of performances.
